Dairy Queen Serving Blizzards For A Great Cause

It's a great day to enjoy some ice cream.

On Thursday Dairy Queen is teaming up with the Children's Miracle Network and the Children's Health Foundation for the 16th annual Miracle Treat Day.

Rebecca Milec is Manager of Marketing and Communications for the Foundation.

She says net proceeds from blizzard treats sold at any southwestern Ontario Dairy Queen location will support the Children's Hospital at London Health Sciences Centre. 

Milec says there are two Dairy Queen locations in Windsor-Essex.

"The Huron Church location and Tecumseh Road location and they will have families out there that have used the services that are local to Windsor," says Milec.  "The impact is very real in that region and there are lots of kids from the Windsor and county area that come to Children's Hospital for care."

Milec adds buying a blizzard today will support thousands of children in the region.

"16 years now the community has really come behind us and supported the event," says Milec.  "Last year we raised over $142,000 in our region for Children's Hospital so it's a really great day and we're expecting really big things today."  

The Children's Hospital provides inpatient and outpatient services for children in southwestern Ontario and parts of Northern Ontario.
